Default ~$2500

alright, im sick of waiting Im going to send out the order for my pc parts tomarrow. Now i just have to decide what to buy. I have a bit more than 2500 but i can sell some crap if its necessary. the money is for just pc parts and mouse, (i have keyboard and monitor).

I am gong to be mostly using it for digital painting and editing so i will ussually have painter, photoshop and 3d studio max all running at same time(on 3 different monitors, Does that make a difference?) I will use it for games aswell and I want the BEST possible sound for music

I want it to be sli compatable but i am only going to buy 1 card for now.

Amd

watercooled

If anyone has some suggestions It would reslly help.

Thanks!
Maximilian

Er... make sure your mobos n all are compatible with the other equipment you have ~_~. The dfi's atx and socket 754, the asus is micro atx and socket 939 :amazed:

A good big case? .... depends on whether your mobo's atx or micro atx, in the end

Keyboard and mouse? er... dunno about keys...maybe a sunbeam 2......as for the mouse, i like my logitech. I don't see the trend of how some mouses and keyboards are designed to be better for gaming. Maybe someone else can help ya there

Id say go with the lanparty over the asus. (your getting amd right?)

Here are some huge cases
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133164
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112093
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112508
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112507

Personally id go with the TT armor series
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154
a little smaller, but still massive. Plenty of room for your Ub3R l337 rig in these, just dont expect to go to many lanparties, although the Tai chi and the last lian li have wheels .

I've personally had my eye on this case:
http://www.antec.com/us/productDetai...?ProdID=81800#

It's not a flashy gamer case with tons of lights and a window, but it is sexy looking. I like the way it's set up inside. Keeping the PSU & CPU in completely separate chambers. Has an excellent airflow system, tool-less installation for drives and has three layered side panels to dampen noise.

IF I was going to buy a new case... I'd go with that... but that's just me.
